Dragon Art, Draco or Jabberwocky? Mythical Beast released to 'KuriousThings' on etsy.com
Dragon Art, Draco or Jabberwocky?
Mythical Beast released to 'KuriousThings' on etsy.com
As the Kuriologist, I'd been having two really unpleasant days on the computer....and when that happens I have to retreat & become creative. In this instance it meant making a 'Dragon' - or Draco, or is it a Jabberwocky?
Now according to 'Alice in Wonderland' author Lewis Carrol, we should -“Beware the Jabberwock, my son!The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!...and this dragon has both teeth & claws! It has six limbs - two wings, two front legs & two back legs.
Therefore it is not a Wyvern.
Apparently, Wyvern have only four limbs. Back legs & wings. Which according to online experts (& lets face it we are ALL online experts these days), is what the dragons in Game of Thrones have, which according to 'some' means they are not dragons, but Wyvern.
...or is it a case of 'all Wiccans are witches, but not all witches are Wiccan'
, ie; All Wyvern are dragons, but not all dragons are Wyverns?
Don't even get me started on Behemoths, Basilisks, Hydra or Cockertrice?
Even the taxonomy of mythical cryptozoological beasts has to be correct these days..& I was just going for a 'ball-park' dragon like 'Smaug' creature. hey-ho.
